Beeb’s ques­tion­able cov­er­age

Daily Mail - - News -

In Jan­uary, the Vic­to­ria Der­byshire show vis­ited Great Yar­mouth, which voted heav­ily for Leave, but ev­ery­one they in­ter­viewed ex­pressed doubts.

MPs said in Oc­to­ber shows were ‘heav­ily bi­ased’ against Leave cam­paign­ers. An anal­y­sis of Ra­dio 4 found lis­ten­ers were two and a half times more likely to hear a pro-EU speaker.

Pro-EU pro­ducer Nick Pisani, 53, han­dled a 50-minute de­bate on the BBC World news chan­nel.

As­sis­tant political editor Nor­man Smith pre­dicted the pound would fall af­ter Theresa May’s com­ments on the sin­gle market. The pound ral­lied.

Pos­i­tive eco­nomic news is of­ten pre­sented ‘de­spite Brexit’. An on­line head­line in Novem­ber read: ‘UK con­struc­tion rises de­spite Brexit vote.’
